Visualization of Remote Sensing Data  
Visualization of Remote Sensing Data (VRSD) is a showcase for imagery created by the Laboratory for Atmospheres at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and by other groups. The visualizations are derived from satellite data which has been color-enhanced or otherwise processed to yield high-impact renderings of hurricanes and other natural phenomena. Because of this processing, these images should be viewed more as works of art than as raw data suitable for quantitative analysis.
